Ortrun Wenkel, contralto
Well, here's another contralto for you all to enjoy: Ortrun Wenkel. The German singer was known for her performances of Wagner's contralto roles in the Ring, as well as of Baroque masters such as Handel, Vivaldi and Gluck. She also recorded many of the Bach's Alto Cantatas. Below is a wonderful video of her performing Antonio Vivaldi's "Nisi Dominus". There is very little information I can find on her in the English language. If anyone can find any interesting articles on her, please send them through via the Contact page. Thank you!
